BRAIN LAB

The Brain Performance and Nutrition Research Centre (BPNRC) conducts randomised controlled trials into the effects of nutrition on all aspects of human brain function from purpose-built laboratory facilities. Trials are conducted to good clinical practice standard and the team publish world-leading research in this area.

This is facilitated by in-house developed cognitive assessment platforms like the Computerised Mental Performance Assessment System (COMPASS) and Cognimapp (a smartphone cognitive and mood assessment app) and the integration of neuroimaging techniques like Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) and Electroencephalography (EEG).
